"Around 8 am, a vegetable vendor brings bottle gourd to the market. However, it gets rotten by 9 am due to the repeated digging of nails by customers. This should not happen with my government. No interference in my government. If someone pokes or interferes his nail should be chopped off. No one can touch my government," Deb said.
